Two Different Disciplines With a Common Goal

Finance and Marketing are two of several focuses in the Business Administration major. These two distinct concentrations make up the Department of Finance and Marketing in Western's College of Business and Economics. While our department is home to two academic disciplines, each with its own faculty, we share the goal of providing a rigorous educational experience for our students that we hope will serve them well as professionals in many types of organizations or while pursuing further education in the field.
